All clothing should be black

A thought occurred to me while stalking a crepe vendor the other day. Whereas I don't wear any clothing, I do notice the clothing of those around me. After all, humans all look alike to me, and so while instructing younger pastries, I'm all like "No, kill the one in the green shirt." What I've noticed is this: while so-called hipsters have been wearing vintage clothing for years, now all of the major clothing chains are selling faux "vintage" shirts. I'm talking like Abercrombie and Fitch 1972, or Old Navy hopscotch team and shit like that. It's kinda lame, but I am looking forward, in fifteen years time, to being able to go to the Salvation Army and purchasing a shirt that is both real vintage and fake vintage at the same time.

I agree, all clothing should be black.

And I think Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch should be burned to the cement foundation.

Kinda like Roman copies of Greek statues. Once they were cheap barbarian crap, but now they're are respectable, prized even. Of course, in many cases we don't have the orginals.

so, if all clothing were black, and you had to tell the younger pastries which human to kill, how would you identify them? could there be at least 2 colors?

That is beautiful, and that means alot coming from me, 'cause I'm a writer. It's like seeing something on TV--It must be true.

I have a hate for faux vintage shirts. They don't cost like "vintage". And when I say cost like "vintage", I mean I am a tightarse.

Whao--just checked the Team 'Loin site--did I hear corrctly...that Kristen and Pant will be gracing SF with thier presence? THAT RULES. HARD.
Counts, Big D and The Allmighty Queer Comandeer are also patiently waiting your arrival. Mathisen of the "Ill Quill" will probably be pretty stoked too.

What kind of ninjas are you? Didn't you notice that it's Talk Like a Pirate day? Why aren't all these philistines dead?! I've had to spend all day correcting their atrocious Early Modern English!

At least the Black Prince, when he sets his mind to slaughter, as he did on this day 649 years ago, he does it.
